Occupation Youtube Producer
Affiliations None, formerly GamerGate

Internet Aristocrat, otherwise known as Jim, was a YouTube personality who became known for his videos discussing GamerGate, Tumblr, and the disparate communities surrounding both.

Quinnspiracy Theory Video Series

His initial video on the Quinnspiracy was spread around many communities and websites, accruing a considerable amount of attention. The video had over 800,000 views when it was taken down. He followed this up with three more videos on GamerGate and the Quinnspiracy.

The first use of the GamerGate hash-tag as a reference to the consumer revolt was by Adam Baldwin on Twitter. Created August 27, 2014, the tweet included links to the first two videos in the Quinnspiracy Theory series regarding the Zoe Quinn Scandal. The hash-tag gained popularity on Twitter, other social media, and message boards, and would go on to represent what is now known as GamerGate.

Radio Nero interviews Internet Aristocrat

In the first episode of Radio Nero, Series 1, Episode 1: What is #GamerGate?[17], Milo Yiannopoulos interviews Internet Aristocrat about GamerGate.


YouTube Channel Closure

Eventually Jim shut down his channel and dissociated himself from the movement. He felt that GamerGate had failed to take 'the opportunity to finally kick the teeth in of social justice warriors'. Additionally, he was incensed by the presence of what he considered to be sell-outs within the movement, believing that they were in it for the money exclusively. He was also perturbed by the abundance of moderation and neutrality, believing that extreme stances had to be taken in order achieve true success. This was stated on this specific vocaroo, although several libellous forgeries were crafted and disseminated across the internet in an attempt to portray him as a self-promoter.

Since shutting down his channel he has returned under a new name, Mister Metokur. [18] [19]
